All that hoopla for nothing.
After writing and later criticizing a document that suggested LGBT people had “gifts and qualities” to offer Catholics, a group of bishops rejected the document. This isn’t terribly surprising; church officials took to the defensive as soon as conservatives spoke out against their document, showing that they didn’t really believe what they were saying.
Rather than considering gays as individuals who had gifts to offer the church, the revised paragraph referred to homosexuality as one of the problems Catholic families have to confront. It said “people with homosexual tendencies must be welcomed with respect and delicacy,” but repeated church teaching that marriage is only between man and woman. The paragraph failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed to pass.
Two other paragraphs concerning the other hot-button issue at the synod of bishops - whether divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive Communion - also failed to pass.
There is a chance for the document to be revisited in future meetings, but probably not anytime soon. Whomp.
this is why you should never put your trust in men “of god”.
